Underwater Origami: Underwater Paper Folding for Kids Reviews
I use a lot of resources and books in my origami "work" and this one has become one of my favorites. Presented well, colorful, intriquing for kids & adults, easy to follow, and the paper included is a real bonus. It is no suprise that the book is by Steve and Megumi Biddle, another name you can trust for good origami books. Well worth the money and time. I continue to fold and find new ways to present and use this book & origami models from the book!
This book is advertised as "paper folding for kids," but there's no question that the sophistication of the instructions makes it a product worthy of adult kids, too. I gave it as a birthday gift to a fellow SCUBA diver who very much appreciates the beautiful forms, colors and papers provided in this beautifully presented book. Great gift for anyone who loves crafts, underwater or just a paper challenge! Highly recommend it -
The book does make some cute things, but it is cheaply made and fell apart the first day I got it.
This was a gift for an 8 year old. He loved it and the book has origami paper included in the back of the book so he was all set to go. The animals go from easy to complex. A great buy and a great hit!
Nice book. I also bought "Origami Adventures: Animals" and "Origami Adventures: Dinosaurs". I am happy with all three, though I kind of like the "Dinosaurs" and "Animals" a little better. They were the same price, but came as hardback books and were spiral bound. They also came with papers that were specifically for each creature being created (with "skin" or "fur" patterns, eyes, etc). Underwater Origami is paperback and comes with solid color papers with no designs, so it is not quite as creative as the "Animals" and "Dinosaurs", but I would still recommend it and I am still very happy I bought. If looking to buy more than one book, I would recommend getting all three. Underwater Origami has nice pictures and is colorful and makes a nice gift.
